GONE TOO SOON:
The world may never notice if a snowdrop doesn't bloom
Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon
But every life that ever forms or ever comes to be
Touches the world in some small way for all eternity
The little one we longed for was swiftly here and gone
But the love that was then planted is a light that still shines on
And though our arms are empty our hearts know what to do
Every beating of our hearts says that we love you
